obama and prime minister yet not who have not agreed. but two talked today about a year or so away from having to make some kind of strategic decision. they both faced the very sudden emergence of syria and the potential or possible use of chemical weapons. that has risen to the top of the agenda. given the fact there are different palestinian factions that are not in agreement about talking to israel, that looks more further down the road. >> do you think they used chemical weapons, or is that deployed by some forces that have at stake the division between israel and the united states and the substance of fashion that would create tension, hostility and nothing would get done? >> i don't know. there is logic to what you just said. that is something that the syrian government would take seriously. back to something that robin just said, clearly, what we saw here today at the press conference was benjamin netanyahu moving much closer to the president's position on this. there has been tension on this. he sees the threat of iran in a much more immediate way. he is trying to pull the unite
back to indiana as michael jackson sang. the president obama's filled out a bracket on espn every year since he's been president obama. and every year right-wingers freak out because president obama fills out a bracket. john boehner retweeted the gop conference, can clutch with his brackets, late with his budgets. he linked his video for filling out a bracket. >> i think it's a disgrace and a joke that the ncaa didn't put us in the tournament. if you ask me it's a bunch of liberal socialism. you can laugh all you want, but it's the truth. and your party's partially responsible for it. >> i promise that was not a horse from the kentucky derby. we should point out ashley judd who's eyeing mitch mcconnell's seat is a big kept kept fan too. so chester may want to rethink his conspiracy theory. let's turn to mike wise for the washington post. mike, before we move on to the tournament, what's your reaction to the right wing freaking out over obama every year when he does his bracket. >> the time it took for senator boehner to actually put that tweet together, the time he could have been work
now by the obama years that we have the mess. my difficulty with the tea party freshmen isn't the true passion. they are an important part of the republican party. at the end of the day you have to govern. just saying no doesn't get you anything and create these falls crises. you can get past the false crises if you work something out. it doesn't mean sur renning principle. working together in a way that you get 60% of what you want. >> you have to go back. i don't think the tea party has created the budget crisis. we came in with members and tried to do something about it. i remember a day when april 15 is when the house and senate had to pass a budget resolution. i remember when they had to reconcile the 13 appropriations bills and a day when the president actually had to introduce his budget and today we don't do any of that stuff and that is how we got to the $16 trillion and there is something rational about standing on the tracks and saying we can't do this any more we have to do it some other way. >> if that was the way these guys are operating i would be all for that. we couldn
. within a couple years obama with the day. approval was 92%. it's people who can make discriminating judgment on the basis of how they assess the new leader of the same country and many western europeans in many places were unhappy with an inarticulate proponent of unilateral u.s. action who have faced swaggering step and didn't seem as interested in their opinion. the president left office who seem to be good at articulating what it was in the u.s. interest to behave multilaterally come to seek cooperation with other countries and so forth and also embodied a set of a deal as people america at the united states is a land of opportunity where anything is possible. so there is a big deep and underlying said hatred. it's actually quite rare. we thank foreigners are able to make establishing judgments about different aspects of the night dave. >> host: why should we care what germans think of us? was the last time we were asked what we thought of angela merkel? >> guest: many are interested in american opinion and the sister of many countries. >> host: but why? >> guest: partly because
to israel. five years after barack obama signed an order to close the u.s. military prison at guantanamo bay, it is about to expand it. the military is requesting 200 civilian dollars to upgrade the facility. obama first order barack gave as president was to close the military prison at guantanamo bay, cuba. five years later, the military wants nearly $200 million to renovate the naval base complex. >> these are things that we have to do right now. bem assuming guantanamo will closed sunday, but if we look into the past 11 years, it was supposed to be temporary. who knows where it is going? >> most of the money would build barracks for u.s. troops. it would also of great communications and legal facilities at the detention center. $49 million would go to build new detainee housing. administration officials say congress order not to transfer detainees to u.s. soil has tied their hands. 56 detainees already cleared to leave will not be released any time soon because the u.s. says there are still security concerns in their home countries. >> the united states will continue in its efforts to be
it the affordable healthcare act or obama care turned three years old today. while some of the law has already taken effect the price tag hangs in the balance and it is huge by any measure, democrat or republican. with the stroke of a pen on march 23, 2010 after months of bitter debating in congress president obama made it the signature achievement of his first term. it faced numerous appeal attempts and seen a supreme court challenge. john boehner saying when democrats rammed obama care through congress three years ago they did so with a host of promises that are proving more empty by the day. instead of keeping the coverage they have an estimated 7 million americans are at risk of losing health insurance ." then the president marking the day by praising the law saying this in part "the affordable healthcare act will give hard working middle class families the healthcare security they deserve and protect every american from the worst insurance company abuses." all this as preparations continue for a full rollout of the law less than a year from how. molly henneberg live for us in washington. critic
is on the ticket, you get a different result, as we saw last year. 2010 was not a referendum on barack obama. the referendum on barack obama was the presidential election and look at the turnout -- the people that came out for him. you continue to misread the results. >> i hate to agree with you because you are trying to disagree with me, so it gets really complicated here. [laughter] i agree with you that barack obama is one of the great candidates in american history and that explains why the democrats did well in 2008 and 2012 -- we had a great candidate -- in 2010, when you neutralize the factor of the candidate, the republicans prevailed, which tells me that republican ideas are strong, and you have to have a candidate or a class of people that can explain it. >> that is the subject of the message to the american people, and they bought it. >>ut in 10, obacareas a factor and it will be a factor in 2014, do you not agree? >> it might very well be, but i will point out that we have returned to the days of yesteryear when dr. krauthammer was laboring in the democratic vineyards, and the e
a warm relationship. almost one year later, the israelis have given obama a medal. they appear to be on the same page on iran. >> diplomacy and sanctions have not stopped iran's nuclear programs. diplomacy and sanctions must be augmented by a clear and credible threat of military action. >> we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >> will this story have a happy ending? >> this story will not have a happy ending. what we saw this week was barack obama at his best, connecting with an audience, and he made a compelling case for the need for a two-state solution, the security of israel and the well- being of the region. >> charles? >> the emphasis has been on personality. what happened is obama changed his positions on the settlement and the peace process. he realized he made a terrible mistake in the first term. he insisted on a settlement freeze as a preconditio. it wrecked peace negotiations and stopped everything. he changed, went back and said in a startling statement that if you get a peace agreement, the sttlement will be resolved
to reconcile these two documents. the house budget would balance after ten years. repeal obama care. no tax increases. the senate budget doesn't get to balance after ten years, it includes $1 trillion of tax increases, even some stimulus money to try to get the economy going. but it's significant that they're fighting at a lower level of intensity and turmoil. notice that the congress left for easter break without a crisis over a government shutdown. there was no crisis over potential debt limit, and government default earlier this year. could come back this summer but so long as it lasts, that's calming for the markets and good for the economy, and it may, lester, leave some space still for a compromise in which democrats would agree to changes in cuts in medicare and social security, and republicans would come up with a little bit more tax revenue, lester. >> all right, john harwood tonight, thank you. >>> president obama wrapped up his four-day visit to the middle east today, after helping israel and turkey end a three-year diplomatic dispute. that, in turn, will help the region deal wit
cake and candles, the birthday bash for obama care t president's health care law turning 3 years old. and the left couldn't be happier. >> it's helped us honor our promise of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. >> but as democrats party we're unwrapping more costs hidden in the health care law, a gift now standing 67 inches high, taller than the president when you pile on all of the new regulations. cashen in crashing the party right now. >> hello everybody. i'mric boling. wayne rogers, jonathan and tracy all joining us this week. welcome everybody. don't crack the bubbly yet. it's three years since president obama signed owe bbama care. boy, is it starting to get messy. that's not republicans declaring it messy. that's one of the architects of the law saying it. watch. >> i think we know it's going to be messy. there's going to be things that come up that are unanticipated. >> he's right. we bought this cake the woman the said you know what, obama care, that's why my hours got cut. i guess we can expect more of that. >> you are going to see a lot more of that. this is one exampl
supported israel with $2.3 billion in foreign military aid. this year, president obama wants to bring that down to just $3.1 billion. [laughter] i know, it looks like it's going up, but remember, in hebrew you read charts from right to left. [cheers and applause] all right? [cheers and applause] and our worst fears about obama were confirmed when he appointed as secretary of defense former senator and man who just learned his dog died-- chuck hagel. [laughter] hagel has a history of troubling statements. he once said the jewy lobby intimidate dates a lot people and i'm not an israeli senator i'm a united states senator. clearly this man doesn't understand that when it comes to israel, there are certain things you can't say. for instance, implying that there are certain things you can't say. which there aren't. you can say anything you want about israel, which i would, if there was anything to say. but there isn't. so there's nothing to be said. how dare hagel say it. now the administration's gonna make a big dilly-o about the fact that while he's over there, obama is going to get isra
is opportunistic to me and one is you a thun thick. the opportunist was barack obama last year when a number of gay democratic voters threatened to withhold their support for his re-election unless he came out for gay marriage. he changed his tune really fast on the issue. the authentic change of heart i think is republican senator rob portman who a couple of days ago announced that he was supporting gay marriage because he has a gay son and very personal issue for him. the clintons for decades now have been rather opportunistic. i would err on the side of tunism. >> why must we impute the most cynical motives. the fact 2004 to now the support for gay marriage went from 37% to 58%. most americans are evolving. you had a candidate mitt romney who wasn't evolving he revolved. >> bill: we do a comp place of compilation of polls. about 53. >> thank you. >> bill: there is no doubt many people have evolved whatever you call it why? >> because the world is changing. >> bill: that's b.s. why? why are people changing? >> i think the media may have a lot to do with it. >> bill: the media? >> people are seein
of president barack obama. and just a year later, a couple of years later, going back there to actually see the dedication of that memorial. all of these things would have been inconceivable in 1963. so, when i talk about martin's dream, what i'm really talking about is the expansion of all of our dreams, to include things that we might not imagine. and i guess my hope in doing the work that i do is that a young teenager today would have that same experience i have -- have had, of having the inimaginable -- unimaginable dream come true, things that you can't even imagine happening happen in their lives. i think that's what all of us up here are talking about when we mention martin's dream. one of the other things that i would say is that we need to properly recognize martin luther king as the world leader he is. i think it diminishes him to say he was an african-american civil rights leader. he was that, but he was so much more. he was the person who symbolized one of the great new movements of human history. when i go back and read his speeches, i'm particularly struck by the way in which
. and we've drifted gradually through the bush years and into the obama years, in which those qualities of that program have been undermined. and president obama is overtly advocating relaxing some of the rules that mandate work requirements for some of the people that are involved heemplet he ihere.he's retreati. that's the wrong way. we have a group of senators, fine people, meeting in secret. maybe they're down the hall now. i don't know where they are. they're plotting right now to pass us an immigration plan. and we just can't wait to see what it is so we can just vote for whatever they decide we ought to have. and you know what they tell us? we can't get workers. we go go got to have foreign wo. we've never had more people on welfare. never had more people on food stamps. in 2001 we spent $20 billion on food stamps. last year we spent $80 billion on food stamps. it's gone up fourfold. but we're told there are not enough americans to do work. somehow this welfare office needs to be dealing with this problem. and we need to have a consolidated program. but there's no plan in this bu
] >> and here's what president obama said. >> today, after a year of debate, today, after all the votes have been tallied, health insurance reform becomes law in the united states of america. >> several states challenged the law but the supreme court upheld it and obama care is the law of the land. we are going to dig further near how this law has defined president obama's legacy a little bit later on in our brain trust. >>> up next though, two teenagers arrested after a baby is shot and killed in his stroller. what police are saying about a possible motive. >>> the president is headed back to washington after his trip to the middle east. what did he accomplish there? we will have a panel from the middle east and beyond with full analysis. you are watching msnbc, the place for politics.

of the explosive growth in spending over ten years, president obama made that worse although the republicans in congress ten years ago didn't cover themselves and the changing face of america. we have many more now supported by workers for the retirement programs and a noble important purpose. they need to be preserved for the next generation. >> you are a proud veteran and something i find to be interesting to some degree of polling is the lack of availability for benefits for those who have served so nobly and come home. i want to put up the stats for you. veterans affairs data. 600,000 veterans have benefits and 245,000 have benefitings back lock logged aier or more. the average is 273 days. the first time claimants from iraq and afghanistan, the average wait is 316 days. how come if you go out and fight for your country and bleed and come back wounded, you are waiting up to a year to get benefits? >> i think it's a result of still trying to process the large surge that we have had in veterans over the last years because of the 9/11 attacks. my interactions with officials at the departmen
, and -- no expense is being scared. three years ago, benjamin netanyahu publicly lectured president obama about the realities of middle eastern politics in his own office. the president looked on ashen face. spokesman are said to regard the other with suspicion, and despite recent efforts to dispel that perception, there is still no special chemistry. >> they had issues. i can recall the issues. there was some kind of tension between both sides, but even though they seem to say we must understand, we must remember, but behind personal feelings, there are interests. >> the state of the economy and social affairs was a big issue in the recent israeli elections. barack obama is likely to find a new israeli government less concerned about peace talks but very preoccupied about the unstable state of the wider region. what mr. obama will hear from his israeli counterparts is israel is very jittery. they are preparing for a fallout as syria disintegrates and hezbollah rearms. >> we are getting ready to shoot back and to be much more aggressive or much more decisive in this war in order to make this wa

every two in five years. years. it's not permit so president obama and the democrats want to raise taxes on many americans. they have to look them in the eye and passed them through the democratic senate. the republican house would have to agree. the republican house is not going to allow them to raise taxes on american people and that is how you force a conversation about reform. the reason why there is been no reform during the obama years and no entitlement reform or welfare reform is that they raise taxes and spend more money when you stop them from having the ability to raise taxes than they have to reform government to decide how to allocate the resources and how to prioritize them. that's the beginning of getting reform and you're quite right that republicans need to be better at walking through with everybody why they are doing things and what they are up to. and speaking directly to people. you can't always expect cbs to articulate the republican position as accurately as we might like. >> host: smiley 22 rights and on twitter, with the trillion dollars and spending cuts in the
forward without him. president obama's healthcare reform law turns three years old saturday. tonight, chief national correspondent jim angle tells us what we have seen so far. >> though obamacare opportunity fully take effect until january, parts of it are already in place, supporters, of course, point to the benefits. >> already more than 3 million young americans gain coverage through their parent's plan. preventive coverage free for tens of million of americans. >> children now have coverage. february they have a preexisting condition, children can stay on the parents' plan until age 26. >> obamacare offers everything from free contraceptives to free preventative services for all ages. but many argue nothing is free. there will be more than a trillion in new taxes over the next ten yearsch even so, new benefits such as free preventive care some at a cost to someone. >> having the cost covered for the patient of mammogram is good but if the reimbursement to facilities is below cost facilities and doctors won't provide the services. >> whole host of new regulatory and compliance req
the top donors to president obama last year were colleges. the university of california gave the president a whopping $1,200,000. unbelievable. harvard university almost $700,000. so you can see that american college students are mostly caught in a liberal environment whether they like it or not. enter ryan row rotela a student north of fort lauderdale. vine mormon enrolled in a communications class taught by the vice chairman of the democratic party if you can believe it dr. deandre poole has been a democratic activist, an activist for years. yet, is he running that class. and as part of the course, dr. poole apparently ordered his students to disrespect jesus. >> he said everybody write jesus on bold letters so what i did was wrote jesus just like this. afterwards he said everybody put it on the floor. he took it out. put it on the floor and he had us all stand up once we were standing up he said stomped on it that's when i picked up the paper from the floor and put it right back on the table. any time you stomp on something it shows that you believe something has no value. so, if you we
down on the dispenries. this is what he told barbara walters last year. >> obama: the federal government has a lot to do when it comes to criminal prosecutions. it does not make sense from a prioritization point of view for us to focus on recreational drug uses in state that has already said that understate law that is legal. >> michael: are advocating for legalizing marijuana now concerned he'll change his position again? >> yes, we're very concerned about this because, he turned out to be one of the worst presidents on the issue. the only thing that is sort of reassuring this time around it has been several months since the passage of legal issues and the administration has been very silent on it. they don't want to talk about it at all. the only answer they get from eric holder are some vague promises soon. and the market that marijuana got more votes in colorado than obama did has changed the politics and dynamics a bit. >> michael: yeah that's an interesting fact that i always find kind of funny. jon walker of fire dog lake, thanks for coming into "the

that in the obama recovery, family income went down to $2,500 a year, where during the recession, income went down $1,500 a year. families were doing worse, yet in the campaign, obama ran an extremely good campaign, and he won despite his disadvantages and he won frankly in a predictable way. he made the election about his opponent. the romney people allowed obama to define romney. this was rather than romney defining romney, and that is why it is important for republicans to look back and say, what did we do wrong? the idea that the republican party is in some terrible shape -- certainly i do not buy that. i have seen terrible shape. i remember watergate, i remember when the 13% of americans identified themselves as republicans, and the national chairman appointed people to see if we should change the name of the party. for 40 years, the most number of republicans in the house was 192. today we have 230 something, and it is absolutely right to figure out what you did wrong, and the obama people outperformed republicans in a number of ways. the idea that we are on the brink of going out of busines
achieve that reality much sooner . you're really saying the president obama's wasted the last four years? >> you betty has. there have been some things they have done ight. the cyber attacks have been great, but the real problem is for the last hundred years the world has gone to war over access to energy. we have now been given the energy of a dream of a lifetime. we have energy independence within our grasp. oil, natural gas. then what happens? we don't need to be in the middle of every civil war because they have their own energy. lou: we have not address the energy -- issue central to our foreign policy go about -- over last two decades, and it's about damn time our leaders started thinking about them. thank you both. we appreciate very much. thank you. much more on the president's day in israel and the tensions that are rising in the middle east. we will have much more throughout this broadcast. the president's gun-control agenda is on life support. we'll take a look at the real reason for its demise in tonight's "chalk talk". staying the course. fed chair ben bernanke says easing
of the optics, president obama spent the first four years trying to put as much distance between him avenue sn the israelis as he could. it didn't serve american interests or anyone's interest. now he's there and talking about my friend bb. maybe it's not sincere, but it's creating a perception of greater closeness. that's a good thing. israelis respond better when they're being held than when they're being scolded. no question, the speech went over well. the real question is whether the president has a realistic vision for-- >> well, he raised the prospects of this peace agreement with the palestinians. he's clearly, john kerry, the secretaries of state made this a priority or wanted to. what are the pluralistic prospects? >> you saw a bit in ramallah when-- >> that's in palestine. >> it's the capital of the west bank, if you will, when he was having a press conference with mahmoud abbas and the american president said, look, let's not have negotiations with pre-conditions and insist that the israelis end settlement activities. and he was effectively scolded by the palestinian president. so,
this week. welcome everybody. don't crack the bubbly yet. it's three years since president obama signed owe bbama care. boy, is it starting to get messy. that's not republicans declaring it messy. that's one of the architects of the law saying it. watch. >> i think we know it'soing to be messy. there's going to be things that come up that are unanticipated. >> he's right. we bought this cake the woman there said you know what, obama care, that's why my hours got cut. i guess we can expect more of that. >> you are going to see a lot more of that. this is one example of the direct impact this is having on small businesses and real americans. we had the leslation, people are trying to read it, get through it. now you see the regulations piling up and the practical day-to-day impact. coming out right now in the form of a woman trying to make a cake and run a living and a business for herself. >> wayne, there e a lot of things we learned about the obama ca law and a lot more. we'll roll through a few of them. this is growing and growing by the day. >> yes. it's too bad the congress didn't learn
temporary, having to be re-upped every two or five years, it is permanent. so if president obama and the democrats want to raise taxes on any american, they have to look it -- look them in the eye and pass it through a democrat senate, and a republican house would have to agree. republican house is not going to allow them to raise taxes on the american people, and that is how you force a conversation about reform. the reason why there has been no reform in the obama years -- no entitlement reform, no welfare reform -- is they just raise taxes and spend more money. but when you stop them from having the ability to raise taxes, then they have to reform government to decide how to allocate resources and how to prioritize. that is the beginning of getting reform. you are quite right that republicans need to do better at working through with everybody why they are doing things, what they are up to, and speaking directly to people. you can't always expect cbs to articulate the republican position as accurately as we might like. host:smiley 22 writes in on twitter -- guest: we have not
process further. they know that they have to deal with obama for next four years and they know they have to deal with netenyahu for the next two or three years, assuming that the israeli government will remain for the rest of its duration. and, and that may explain the hints that the palestinians may walk back from their position that there has to be a public announcement of a freeze on settlements before they go back to negotiations. they don't, they cannot afford to alienate obama again. it's true that obama had a better relationship with obama. so this is a palestinian's chance to go back to the peace process, without alienating obama and give the president and give themselves another chance. >> we're going to have to leave it there, to be continued, thank you very much. good to see you. >>> and up next here, the "atlantic"'s jeffrey goldberg and president obama's former adviser on iran, as well as george bush's dennis ross. you're watching "andrea mitchell reports."
